Inhale? A new barrage of figures linking smoking to disease and death may seem centered on you The broadest study of the subject yet made shows death rates increase with extent of exposure to cigaret smoke, says the American Cancer Society. fff ITS REPORT TODAY came on the heels of a pro- posal by the American Medical Association's Board of Trustees for a research program on tobacco and health "beyond statistical evidence." The American Cancer Society's report was based on. men who filled out detailed questionnaires and then were traced for an average of 34 3 months. Dr. E. Cuyler Hammond, the society's director of statistical research, outlined the new findings at the 17th annual clinical meeting of the American Medical Associa- tion The figures confirm previous findings and go further, he said. PIPE-SMOKING Dr. Hammond reported death rates were far higher among cigaret smokers than non-smokers, they increased with amount of smoking, and they were lower among ex-smokers of a year or longer than among current smokers. The latest study, aimed at refuting challenges to six earlier ones, includes many new factors One parf of it compares death rates of 36.975 matched pairs one smoker and one non-smoker. The "tvyins" were matched for age, race, height, urban (See Page 2, Col. 6) They'll sell shares in marsh Anyone can own a share of Mentor Marsh. The Mentor Marsh Committee hopes to raise through the sale of shares in the unique area. Shareholders will have no le- gal equity in the marsh. THE COMMITTEE needs to complete the pur- chase of 80 acres of marsh from the New York Central Railroad. A down payment was contributed by the H a n n a Foundation. The committee has one year to raise the rest of the S50.000 purchase price. Another will be used to buy fringe property that thej committee feels is needed as a buffer between the marsh and residential developments. Mrs. Raymond Evans of the committee announced the share plan to about 55 attending a meeting last night at Mentor High If the committee buys the railroad land, it will control 470 acres of the marsh Gifts of 300 and 90 acres have been re- ceived from the Morton Salt Co. and the Diamond Alkali Co.

They forget about the arm with the red handle. Pope going to Holy Land VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul VI decreed a vast reform of Roman Catholic worship today, called on the bishops of his church to share with him in its government, and then announced he would make an historic trip to the Holy Land next month. It will be the first trip by a Roman Catholic pontiff out- side Italy in 159 years, since December 1804, when Pope Pius VII went to Paris to Crown Napoleon. f IT ALSO WILL BE the longest trip ever made by a Pope. The 66-year-old Roman Catholic ruler, in office scarcely five months, took the actions at a mementous closing meet- ing in St. Peter's Basilica of the second session of his Ecu- menical Council. He and his bishops gave Roman Catholicism its first two councilor decrees in 93 on liturgy, the other on mass then recessed the council until September.

"About the only thing you can accomplish here is turn the kids to snuffing agreed Coun- cilman Richard Kostic, head of the safety committee "The people who own these machines are victims of cir- cumstance. They don't make anything on them. They put them there for the customers' convenience and the kids and take advantage of them.'
